Bright history, vibrant future

 “Everything you would expect to see will be there,” said Shoshana Wasserman, director of communications and cultural tourism for the Native American Cultural and Educational Authority (NACEA). “The last three or four years has been about the funding and not the cultural experience people will have. This (museum) will change the minds of people from

(Soon-to-be) Winning

The Tishomingo resident has traditionally fared well in the CMAs, vying for a fifth straight Female Vocalist of the Year award. Lambert has yet to attain the prestigious Entertainer of the Year prize, though she is nominated in that category as well. Her competition for the top honor? Defending champ Luke Bryan, George Strait …
